What I was offering in that long ago place and time was a choice rarely given on forums: an opportunity to post in a smiley-free zone. Needless to say I wasn't thanked for it, and am still awaiting forgiveness in some quarters.Thank you, Shaun - if you didn't offer the opportunity, the forum would surely be a sadder, less forgiving place?
I find it rather sad
Many years ago, way back in the early ages of man, there was communication by pictures:
Then man realised the limitations and developed language with its rich range of things called words. In doing so man enabled a higher level of communication with nuance, context and he ability to address complex subjects
Now we are simply too lazy to use that language and are going back to using pictures in the same way as the early cave dwellers
A bad thing?in the same way as the early cave dwellers
